Scan stamps, see Muscat airport

Muscat, Dec 5 – Oman post and Oman Airports have issued two new interactive stamps on Muscat International Airport on Wednesday. The new stamps offer an augmented reality experience through the Oman Stamp App. By scanning the stamps, one can explore the new international airport and all its splendor. The stamps were unveiled by Shaikh Aimen bin Ahmed al Hosni, CEO of Oman Airports, in the presence of Abdulmalik al Balushi, CEO of Oman Post and officials at the airport premises. The new interactive stamps can be reserved now by emailing Oman Post on: philatelic@omanpost.om.
“Following the successful commencement of the Muscat International Airport’s operations earlier this year, the new stamps highlight the airport’s status as a gateway to beauty and opportunity. As one of the Sultanate’s most iconic landmarks, it was recently named the World’s Best Leading New Airport in 2018 and ranked 20th Best Airport in the World in the 5-15 million passengers category,” said CEO of Oman Airports. Oman Airports won the Sultan Qaboos Award for Excellence in eGovernment 2018 in the Best Private Sector eService category for the Airport’s Data eServices on Wednesday.
“The integration of augmented reality in the two new stamps brings Muscat International Airport to life. For the first time in Oman, collectors will enjoy an entirely new dimension to stamps and be able to experience different aspects of the airport, including a video showcasing many of its features and facilities. This innovative approach is part of our transformation journey at Oman Post towards a new age of postal services,” said the CEO of Oman Post.
The two new stamps display photographs of the Muscat International Airport’s state-of-the-art facilities. The first stamp showcases an aerial view of the airport with the sun setting in the distance reflecting Oman’s tranquility and beauty. The second stamp features the airport’s passenger terminal, illustrating a space full of travellers, palm trees, and the airport’s exquisite architecture.
